This is Us
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit community center reflecting the community around it: diverse, supportive, and strong. The mission of the Clarkston Community Center is to connect Atlanta's communities and cultures through education, recreation, and the arts.
Who We Are
Clarkston Community Center opened its doors in 1994 and continues to grow every year. Currently, we proudly serve more than 60,000 individuals.
We are a meeting place for both long-term residents and families and individuals that were not born in the U.S. In fact, 53% of Clarkston’s residents are foreign-born and more than half are living in poverty. The CCC provides unique experiences, educational resources, and valuable tools that foster community while celebrating cultural diversity.
Programs for All Ages
The Clarkston Community Center has a full range of community programs including an after-school program and a thriving summer camp. Serving over 60,000 individuals per year, CCC uses art, dance, music and culture to connect, support, and learn. From English as a Second Language classes and Ecstatic Dance Atlanta dance groups to Tabala martial arts and Vietnamese games, the CCC has unique programs and events that keep our vibrant community connected. The CCC strongly supports resources that promote health and wellness in the community, and our seniors have access to such programs as Tai Chi, Senior Technology Courses, Monthly Art Programs and much more. We also offer connections to exciting jobs programs and recreation opportunities for all.
Refuge for Refugees
The Clarkston Community Center is a safe and welcoming place for refugees. The CCC offers English language classes, connections to legal help, special events and more. But it cannot be done alone. Please consider how you can support the mission.
